Annual Report #1

A Word from Pastor Jill

Wow! Every year I am more and more humbled by the work I get to be a part of at Hope Church. Just like every year past, I am blown away by these numbers. Statistics aren't our goal at Hope, but they are a great way to see a bird's eye view of the work our community is doing. Because of YOU—your faith, your generosity, your dedication—our collective efforts are truly changing lives.

We're all part of the body! Just different parts. Take a look at what our arms are doing and what our feet are doing - there's so much happening at Hope Church, and we're so glad you're involved. This extended letter can include a testimonial from a church member, a longer letter from the pastor, or even a more detailed intro from your communications manager! It expands as long (or as short!) as your church needs it to be. Vivamus eu euismod ipsum, at sagittis ante. Vestibulum et ex vel est varius maximus. Aliquam at orci justo.

Attendance

Attendance

4,979 average weekly attendance

Which is a 3.5% increase from 2018—and a 26% increase in the last six years! We have been intentionally engaging neighborhoods through our Small Group outreach nights, and we've loved seeing the response. Attendance isn't everything, but we think it's a helpful tool to see how our engagement is growing!
